This series just gets better and better. Kroese is a master satirist. If you like this check out his Starship Grifters
Would you try another book from Robert Kroese and/or Kevin Stillwell?
Yes, especially with Stillwell as the narrator.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Hmmm, I can't think of a most interesting aspect, as there are many things going on at once. I was least interested, however, in the long ruminations over religion, good and evil, and belief/non-belief in God's existence. It got really tedious.
What does Kevin Stillwell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Stillwell makes the book for me. His narration is superb. He lands all the subtle jokes and perfectly voices the different characters. The following book in the series is not read by him, and I couldn't finish it.
Do you think Mercury Rests needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Well, I read the follow-up, so I obviously like the series. But each novel gets more and more absurd and hard-to-follow. It seems as if the writer needs a better editor or maybe just needs to stop the series. I found this my least favorite of the series because it just goes on and on with no restraint. At times, it is like reading someone's rambling thoughts on life and the existence of God.
Any additional comments?
I recommend the first two in the series, but this one is for the hardcore, committed Mercury fan only.
